Classic console fans, buckle your proverbial seat belts, because it looks like another of Nintendo's most iconic consoles could be about to get a reboot. Although it appears to be a de facto likeness trademark protection application.
Trademark applications can be very broad, but with Nintendo's recent trend of shrinking down classic consoles, a Game Boy Classic Mini doesn't seem like too much of a stretch of the imagination.
The firm has recently re-released mini versions of its classic consoles from the mid 80's and early 90's, the NES and SNES, so a relaunch of the vintage handheld gaming system would certainly follow the trend which has also been taken up by others, such as phone maker Nokia who recently released a remake of its almost indestructible 3310.
Nintendo are naturally proud of the new release with Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing saying, "While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it".Читайте также: Justice League Gets A New Video Featuring the Superheroes Going "All In"

It isn't clear if Nintendo plans to re-release it, but with the 30th anniversary of the original Game Boy's release coming up in 2019, such a move certainly isn't out of the question.
Competing with Sega's Game Gear, Atari's Lynx, and NEC's TurboExpress, the Game Boy soon blew all of its rivals out of the water and became an unparalleled success.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
